"We're an awesome band, and we keep touring. I can't ask for more as a 48-year-old bald father of three. I'm pretty happy to be out doing this job."
This year marks the 27th anniversary of the Barenaked Ladies. If that doesn't make you feel old, the fact that they've titled their latest (and 14th) album Silverball might.

Aries: You may notice that people tell you much more than they would reveal to others. It's like they've been waiting for you. #life  
The lunar shift from Taurus to communicative Gemini is an agitating force. Opinions burble to the surface — everyone seems to have a different one. Don't believe all you hear. Wait for more information to come out. It would be lazy to base your choices on popular notions. Besides, there's too much that will change in the days to come.

Time for the weekend love forecast! Here's what's in store for Capricorn: First you'll take a risk, and then others will. #life  
The ghosts and goblins are out early this year, and tonight will be nearly as festive as tomorrow night under the friendly, curious Gemini moon. A trine of the spooky Scorpio sun and imaginative Neptune in Pisces bodes well for those trying to come up with last-minute costumes. The night will have many creative and conversational highlights.

Some of the Liberals' ideas are good; some of them are bad. The point is that they are substantive, lending credibility to the "Real Change" slogan, writes Andrew Coyne. #news  
Canada's New Liberal Government (or are we calling it that?) has not taken office yet, but already the nation's headline writers are setting it up for failure.

It may be overstating matters a tad to say health care privatization is no longer a dirty word. In fact, exactly how far the Sask. Party can - or is willing to - go down the health care privatization road will be very interesting to watch. #news  
The eagerness of Premier Brad Wall and his Saskatchewan Party government to take on the NDP over health care wait times is intriguing for a few reasons:

"We stood there and watched this young couple shoot up heroin into their arm and their thumb. You always talk or hear about it, but actually seeing the human response to that stuff is crazy," Mitch Wheaton said. #sports   #health  
Taking a walk around Vancouver's notorious East Hastings Street induces a tide of emotions - shock, disbelief, compassion, fear, anger, sadness, pity. The list goes on and on.

We are Saskatoon's daily newspaper
Introduction

On Friday, October 17, 1902, G. Wesley Norman and his brother, Leonard, tugged at their Washington hand press to produce 1,000 copies of Saskatoon's newspaper, The Phoenix. The weekly was produced in a small frame building on 21st Street.

The paper was then bought and sold a couple of times and was reborn in 1907 as the Daily Phoenix. It was published three times a week until 1909 when it became a daily and was renamed the Saskatoon Capital in 1910.

In 1912 the paper was sold again to W. F. Herman and Talmage Lawson and its name was changed from the Capital to the Saskatoon Daily Star.

During the 1920's a series of sales and purchases between newspaper owners in Saskatoon and Regina left Saskatoon with two daily papers, Saskatoon Daily Star and The Daily Phoenix.

Then, on January 1st, 1928, the Sifton family, publishers of the Winnipeg Free Press bought and amalgamated the papers to form the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix.

The Siftons owned the paper until it was purchased by Hollinger Newspapers in 1996. Hollinger was purchased by CanWest Global Communications Corp. in 2000. The StarPhoenix is now a division of Postmedia Network Inc.
